In an offseason of total upheaval, the Jets recently made possibly one of their most important decisions.
“I don’t necessarily want to rule Geno out or anoint him,” Maccagnan told Carton and Connolly. “It’s a work in progress.”
If the Jets are entertaining any notions of moving up in the draft to get one of the two top-rated quarterbacks available, they better look in the rearview. At least one team is reportedly plotting a power move.
Thirteen months ago, the Jets rallied to save Rex Ryan’s job. It was obvious to Nick Mangold that history wasn’t going to repeat itself in 2014.
The difference between this regime change and the countless that have come before it is this time no one can say the Jets weren’t diligent or that they didn’t think through the hiring of new general manager Mike Maccagnan and head coach Todd Bowles.
If you thought you had a bad Monday, these guys lost their jobs. Personally, I thought Rex deserved another shot.
A year of promise turned into a nightmare for Rex Ryan and his New York Jets.
Somebody should thank this man for his service. He deserves it and then some.
Career games from Geno Smith and Eric Decker lead the New York Jets to a victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Vick is a free agent after this season, with his one-year deal with the Jets expiring. He hasn’t ruled out returning to New York, but he didn’t sound all that enthusiastic about the possibility, either.
“I see myself helping this team turn things around. Obviously, I’m a part of the reason why we’re in this position, so I’d love to be a part of the solution.”
Geno Smith is going his own way on the coaching issue, which just shows how divided against him the locker room remains.
One more week. One final game. That’s all that might be left in Rex Ryan’s tenure as coach of the Jets, with his future uncertain beyond Sunday’s season finale.
A disappointing season for the New York Jets is winding down, and there was almost a victory over the New England Patriots to help round it out. Unfortunately, coming up “just short” is the way to describe a lot of things this year.
